The University of East London (UEL) is a dynamic university at the cutting edge of cultural and technological change. In an increasingly competitive and highly skilled economy, UEL is developing programmes of teaching and research that are practical, innovative and relevant, meeting the needs of students and industry alike.

UEL is rated among the top 10 UK's leading modern universities for research, and their researchers are engaged in work of national and international importance across a wide range of disciplines.

Whilst the University has a commitment to its local region, there is a growing attention paid to international work. UEL has over 23,000 students of 120 different nationalities which makes it one of the most diverse study destinations in the UK. In the past 12 years, more than 2,000 Malaysian students have graduated from UEL.


UEL campuses are located in vibrant, affordable areas, and London's great transport system ensures that all the benefits of living and studying in the capital are on your doorstep.

East London is now recognised as a great place to live, work and study. With the success of London's bid for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, UEL is on the threshold of tremendous change, and at the heart of the most exciting urban development project in Europe.

UEL transforming vision for the region means the development of a new kind of university, serving the needs of our student community, and actively engaged in outreach and networking activities with local communities and businesses.
